Payment Trend Updates for June 2021

Share this post

In the future, payments, loans, and deposits are likely all commoditised. They are frictionless and digital, driving down the opportunities for banks to charge fees and interest. So, how can banks continue to provide value to people?

One way is by improving the payment experience as a whole. Exactly how the payment happens or is initiated is not so important anymore. Instead, the real value comes from special offers, rewards, storage of receipts, warranty information, or perhaps even allowing for pre-payment and payment-by-instalment.
In the future, banking apps will also have to handle online e-commerce, point-of-sale, and SCA using an omnichannel model where the same singular app does everything.  For example, while MasterCard and Visa represent traditional card schemes, the future may be marked by fully digital payment services that don’t involve traditional cards.
It is hard to predict who will be in charge of the payments in the future. Will it be banks, issuers, merchants, or platforms such as Google or Apple? One thing is for sure – in the future, it won’t just be about making payments as cheaply and as quickly as possible.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
